Military Events

The USS Missouri Memorial Assoc is dedicated to preserving her legacy as the site of Japan’s unconditional surrender to the Allied Forces on Sept 2nd 1945, ending World War II, and to honor the commitment of all of the men and women past and present who served our great country. One of the ways we are able to do that is through our Military Ceremonies Program.
